We’re raising the bar on Wichita personal training.
GoTimeTraining entered into the fitness industry back in 2011 after its owners left their corporate jobs and decided to pursue their passion in the fitness business. The owners, Kalene Smith and Shannon Dykman, met back in 2009 and began their own journeys towards becoming fit and learning the lifestyle they eat, sleep, and breathe today.
They saw tremendous results from learning about nutrition to create a body transformation. Growing up, Kalene and Shannon, never lived healthy lives and weren’t the athletic ones in school. Both began their careers behind corporate desks. Kalene was employed at Koch Industries in Human Resources and Shannon was a Mechanical Engineer at The Boeing Company and later was appointed the Chief of Staff for the Wichita facility.Kalene and Shannon found a passion in the weight room and entered into the competitive fitness scene where it taught them a great deal about how to coach personal training clients to see weight loss. They found the missing link for most personal training programs was personalized nutrition coaching. And, this was their “aha moment” that paired their fitness knowledge with their Master of Business Administration degrees and their business model was born.
After realizing a tremendous opportunity to help people by way of their lifestyle approach to personal training, Kalene and Shannon left their jobs to become full time entrepreneurs and open GoTimeTraining, a private Wichita personal training studio in northeast Wichita, Kansas.

ACE Certified Personal Trainer
I was born in Tulsa OK, lived in nearby Sapulpa OK until age 10, then moved to Winfield KS. I attended Udall High school where I graduated in 2010 with a class of 27 people. I was a 3 sport athlete from age 5 to 18. After high school I attended Independence Community College where I played two seasons of football. After three semesters I transferred closer to home and attended Cowley County Community College for one semester. After Cowley I attended Southwestern College in Winfield where I continued to play football. I graduated from Southwestern with a Bachelor's in Sports Management. I really have football to thank for my love of fitness. Seeing progress is an amazing feeling and I want to help others see just how great it is.

Growing up I was very active. As a young child I played summer softball. In high school I played volleyball and softball. Staying active always kept me in shape, energized and feeling confident in myself.
Like most people, I stopped playing sports after graduating high school. It was time to take on responsibility in life which led to a desk job and a serious boyfriend (who later became my husband). My life went from high activity to somewhat sedentary which led to slow and steady weight gain.
After a year of marriage, my husband and I wanted to start a family. I went into pregnancy with the wrong mindset but didn't know any better at the time. I thought "I'm going to get fat anyway so I can eat whatever I want". I weighed around 150-155 pounds and gained 26 pounds with each of my daughters and never lost any of it after having them. In 2009, one year after my second daughter was born, I was 200 pounds. There was no excuse, I was no longer pregnant therefore I should have been able to lose the weight but my mindset wasn't there yet.
One day it hit me, I didn't want to look or feel this way anymore. That is when I decided to get serious about getting back into the pre-pre-baby shape I was in before. To get back to the activity I once loved so much and to begin nourishing my body with healthy foods that made me feel good.
I recruited my best friend to be my workout partner. She was very important for me to have. She helped keep me accountable and motivated to workout, especially on the days I just wanted to give up.
January 2015 my world got turned upside down when my husband past away. I was 33 years old and became a widow, the worst title I have ever had. My daughters were 6 and 8 years old and I knew I had to be strong for them and not give up on life.
At this point I was going to the gym consistently 5-6 days a week. I stopped most cardio and focused mainly on strength training. Family, friends and acquaintances kept telling me how strong of a women I am with all that I have gone through. They were amazed that I still walked around with a smile on my face while keeping everything from falling apart. Little did they know the distress, sadness, fear, anger, and numbness I was truly experiencing.
Despite all the emotions I found going to the gym was my form of therapy. This is where I found my passion for health and fitness. People around me started to see a change in me and began asking what I was doing. I realized I wanted to get involved in the health and fitness world to help others because it has made such an impact on my life.
My entire life is so different now then it was a couple years ago. I went from being married with two daughters, running a daycare out of my home, going to school full time for elementary education, and being physically weak both mentally and physically to graduating with my teaching degree, becoming a widow, but also becoming mentally and physically strong, appreciating life and all the blessings God has given me. It isn't easy for a single mom to get to the gym 5 days a week but I have been doing it for a year now and I am so glad that I have.
My goal is to help inspire everyone I come in contact with, that they can turn their health around through exercise and nutrition just like I did.

My fascination with transforming my physique began in early 2004 while studying Mechanical Engineering at Western Michigan University. I began lifting weights with a close friend and became hooked on the mental release and sense of accomplishment that working out provided. I didn’t grow up in a household centered around fitness or health (sorry Mom) and my poor lifestyle choices led to several gastrointestinal disorders. It wasn’t until I graduated and moved to Wichita, Kansas for a job in the Aerospace Industry that I fully uncovered my passion for nutrition and it’s ability to manipulate the human body. Little did I know that all of my issues with my ‘stomach’ hinged on the fact that I had a terrible diet.
When I moved from Michigan to Kansas in January 2006 I started a new life on my own and I uncovered what happened when you mix clean nutrition, hard work in the gym, and consistency. In a few short months, I had transformed my lifestyle and lost nearly 20 pounds. It was from that point forward that I embraced the lifestyle and now live it on a daily basis.
My business partner, Kalene Smith, and I first met in 2009 and through our friendship, we both began to develop our passion for health and fitness to a higher level. We were able to rely on each other for motivation to push our bodies to the competitive level as natural physique athletes. In 2010 I entered into and won my first natural bodybuilding competition. Today, I am a professional natural bodybuilder with the International Federation of Physique Athletes (IFPA) and I continue to develop my knowledge of nutrition, training, and lifestyle transformation without the use of performance enhancing drugs.
Aside from my Engineering Degree, I also have a Master of Business Administration from Wichita State University and in September of 2012, I quit my full time job in the Aerospace Industry to work full time as Owner/Operator of GoTimeTraining.com and a Wichita personal trainer. Today I spend my time coaching clients in our Wichita personal training studio and online to help them transform their lifestyle just like I did years ago. If you’d like to get in touch with me please don’t hesitate to drop me an email or friend request on Facebook.
ACE Certified Personal Trainer & Nutrition Coach
I was born and raised in a small town in western Kansas. While I was active year round in sports, I still constantly battled my weight. I had been overweight for as long as I could remember and battled self-confidence issues from a very young age.
In 2008, after the birth of my second child I had reached a weight that listed me in the obese category and I was mentally broken by what I saw in the mirror. I tried every fad diet and even resulted to prescription weight loss pills in desperation to lose weight and feel better about myself. Every attempt seemed to be a failure and pushed me deeper into self-doubt. By the time my son was two years old, I decided I didn’t want to feel like this anymore! I joined a local gym and started doing small amounts of cardio and making easy substitutions in my diet. Within weeks I started to see and feel the results of eating better and moving my body and this new lifestyle quickly turned into a passion.
Over the course of two and a half years, I lost over 125 pounds. I figured out the key to success wasn’t in a fad diet or pill. The key to success was making a lifestyle change; one that would benefit my family and myself. Half way through my success I decided to pursue a degree in nutrition and health, in hopes that one day I would be able to coach people through their own transformations.
I know how scary and overwhelming change can be and I am here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way! I will be there every step of the way – to encourage you, push you, and to believe in you even when you don’t believe in yourself!
Director of Programing, IFPA Certified Personal Trainer & Pn1 Nutrition Certified
Throughout my entire life I was always an active person. As a young child I was introduced to competitive sports through my mother and father which carried on throughout my teenage years. While finishing up high school, I decided to join the military where physical fitness was of high importance. Throughout my Basic and AIT training, I excelled as the highest performer in my company on the APFT (Army Physical Fitness Test). While deployed overseas in 2006, the chance for conducting physical fitness started to become nonexistent due to the high stress and high volume working atmosphere. Upon returning home in August of 2007, the though of exercise and clean nutrition did not cross my mind like it had before.
In 2008, I moved to Wichita and that’s when I started noticing a physical change in my appearance, it wasn’t a good change! I decided to get a membership at a local gym in attempt to get back into shape. This would be the first time that I would actually weigh myself, only to be disappointed in myself. My weight increased almost 20 percent from before being deployed. While trying to get back into a gym routine, I was also attending school and working part time. Work and school started to interfere with my frequency of working out. In 2009, I joined a Reserve unit and found out how out of shape I really was. The Reserves began recording me height and weight, as well as my Body Mass Index. This is what motivated me to revamp my diet and lifestyle, and dedicate myself to transforming my body.
I began educating myself on the importance of nutrition and what foods I needed to incorporate to start successfully reducing my weight. I started to work in the fitness department at a sporting goods store where I began incorporating and exploring more in-depth information on fitness and nutrition. I started going to the gym first thing in the mornings and over a couple months I was losing weight with success and never looked back. I received my Personal Training Certification from the I.F.P.A. in 2011. Just recently, I graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice, but my passion to help others through my own personal transformation and knowledge in exercise has set me on a different path. To see others motivated to change and step up to achieving their fitness and lifestyle goals, only makes my passion grow.
ACE Certified Personal Trainer
I am a Wichita native born and raised. The only other place I have lived is Kansas City attending Johnson County Community College (JCCC) and the following summer being a camp counselor at a Poland Christian summer camp. In my younger years I spent most of my time playing sports such as baseball, football, soccer, and some track and field. What I enjoyed most though was preparing for the sports sessions by going through conditioning and weight training. My favorite classes in school were my weight classes learning about fitness. In those classes I had some great teachers that sparked a passion that led me in to the field of fitness.
Advice that my father and grandfather passed down is to seek out something you love and you will never work a day in your life. That advice is something that has always stuck with me. So one day when I was working out to one of those fun but not so sustainable living room workout videos with some friends, it dawned on me that exercising is something I love doing and I wanted to be like the guy on the video teaching others how to exercise. From that day forward I have been passionately pursuing a career in personal training. First by exploring the web trying to learn all I could. Then by starting class at Heritage College in the person training program.
Upon graduation in 2011 from Heritage College, I started working at the Wichita Country Club gym as an intern, where I had worked in the golf department for the previous 6 years. I have 4 years of experience as a personal trainer at the country club with my last year being the Director of Fitness.
Outside of work I spend most of my time with my beautiful bride Marissa and my wonderful daughter Eleanor. I spend the weekends serving at church and spending time with my mentee in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. My hobbies are playing indoor soccer and participating in mud races. I also enjoy hiking and mountain biking.
Administrative Assistant & Customer Service
Growing up I had no nutrition education other than an apple a day or stay off your game console. Luck enough I played sport all through high school and my first two years of college. I then quickly learned you can't out exercise a bad diet.I love being a part of the GoTimeTraining's team, as I help with account needs and general program questions. To find me, I'll be the girl with a friendly smile greeting you at the front desk.
In 2007, I decided it was time for a change and incorporated fitness into my life. My personal health and fitness journey has evolved into a passion for helping others lead a healthy lifestyle. My journey began in the midst of completing my undergraduate degree and had just started a new job at one of the largest privately held companies in the United States. School and work time demands were a convenient excuse for not utilizing my gym membership. However, I was not comfortable with my lack of physical activity so made a personal commitment to attend group cardio classes 5 days a week. A few months later I discovered Oxygen Magazine; this magazine enlightened me of the importance of combining nutrition, resistance training and cardio to get optimal results.
Incorporating resistance training was intimidating. I was unsure of my technique and fearful of being judged by others. I slowly began integrating the few resistance exercises I was familiar with and began phasing out the group cardio classes choosing to do cardio individually. At this time I met Shannon who persuaded me to join his gym in order to train together. Shannon showed me various exercises and techniques that would target specific areas of the body. After training together for months and incorporating balanced meals I saw my body gain lean muscle mass. I found it fascinating to see how nutrition and exercise can transform the body and wanted to take my fitness to the next level. That next level was found in the sport of bikini competitions. In 2010, with the support of Shannon and my family, I went on to train and compete in my first bikini competition. All the while, I continued to educate myself on health and nutrition.
I have personally experienced how proper exercise and nutrition can change your life. Not only am I healthier but I have a sense of self confidence I’d not had before my journey began and I want the same for others. Today, I am a certified Personal Trainer and strive to help others reach their personal goals. I have seen several of my clients change from the inside out; it is so gratifying to see my clients, friends and family feel better about themselves.

As a young adolescent my mother passed away from cancer. I did not realize it at the time, but that experience would fuel me towards the path of not only increasing my health and fitness but to help others increase theirs. I, of course, started off just wanting to not be the skinny kid. As with many teenagers, I wanted muscles! I found that working out also relieved my depression and gave me a purpose that I never thought would grow to be my life! I started reading muscle magazines, researching the internet and living at the gym. It took some trial and error, but through educating myself, with the help of others, and staying consistent, I started seeing improvement. As I started seeing improvement, so did others and people started looking to me for guidance. At that point I saw that I could help people to see and feel all the amazing benefits of nutrition and fitness and to change the quality of their life and its longevity. That’s when I decided that I wanted to be a Personal Trainer! I have been a Certified Personal Trainer in the for over 12 years now.
I attained my first A.F.P.A Personal Training Certification and started training in my local gym in Ponca City, Ok. A few years later, I moved to Tulsa, Ok. to follow my dreams and further my future as a Personal Trainer. I received my N.A.S.M Certification and began working for All American Fitness where I started as a Certified Personal Trainer, then promoted to Fitness Manager and then again promoted to General Manager. After seven years working for All American Fitness I was presented with a unique opportunity to help open a brand new fitness facility, Body Masters, from ground up as General manager and Certified Personal Trainer. I helped with every aspect of opening the new gym, from moving in equipment to training the staff. I, of course, continued in my passion to better lives by personally training members. It was the job of my dreams but it is amazing how one’s dreams can change. Mine sure did when I met the love of my life, my fiancé Monica! Only problem was that she lived 3 hours away in Wichita, Kansas. Once again, with great thought, I followed my heart and now live in Wichita and I believe that it was all for a greater purpose. I became an Instructor at Heritage College in the Personal Fitness Trainer program where I received my ACE certification and am now educating students to go out and help others. I am excited to join the GoTimeTraining.com team and begin transforming the lives of others. In the future I plan to step on the fitness/bodybuilding stage and look forward to working with other competitors to help them prepare as well.

ACE Certified Personal Trainer & Conditioning Specialist
My entire life I’ve participated in sports and athletic events. My family was one that was involved in sports and was very helpful in raising me to be a healthy individual. My senior year I decided to major in Exercise Science and study how exercise and nutrition can manipulate the body to bring people the health and cosmetic goals they want to achieve. In spring of 2014, I ended my sports career and chose to attend Wichita State University. I didn’t want my competitive life to end, so with the referral of a friend, I started training for a natural physique competition under the help of Shannon Dykman. Under his coaching, I have learned how my body reacts to foods and how I can use exercise as a positive outlet for my life. I gained a lot of confidence and started doing research on my own.
After going through some Exercise Science courses I realized what I want for a career in this field. I wanted to help people accomplish their fitness and health goals as the role of a personal trainer. In November 2014, I started an Internship at GoTimeTraining under the teaching of Coach Raymond Elliot. I couldn’t have made a better decision about how to earn my certification. Raymond was able to teach me so many useful things about being a trainer and GoTimeTraining was able to give me experience with one-on-one training to grow and develop as a trainer. With my continuing education and experience, I will grow and develop into a great Wichita personal trainer one day at a time.
